Warner Media just dropped the trailer of THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD. It is based from the novel of the same name written by Michael Koryta.
Finally, Angelina Jolie is back on this neo-Western survival action thriller. Jolie is no stranger to action films but the survival aspect of the film made it more intense and grounded. The positive reaction the trailer got shows that Jolie is still a big draw. THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD is a great way for Jolie to reintroduce herself to the audience before her upcoming MCU debut with The Immortals. (Another upcoming film of hers that fans are excited about)
The movie is about two people with traumatizing experiences who will find each other. Connor Casserly(Finn Little) a little boy who is running away from the men(Nicholas Hoult and Aiden Gillen) who killed his father. His father told him to find a person he can trust before he got killed. He will meet Hannah Faber (Angelina Jolie), she is a Smokejumper who suffers from PTSD after failing to save three people. She failed to save people before but now she will do everything to protect this boy from harm. The two must rely on each other to survive their dangerous assailants.
If you love Ellen Ripley from Aliens or Claire Redfield from Resident Evil 2, then you will appreciate this film. To distract the Police from their upcoming crimes, the Assassins will start a forest fire. They did it to lessen the survival of their target. Hannah and Connor will go through trials that will activate their adrenaline rush. There is tension and dread because the main leads will always be vulnerable.
Taylor Sheridan of Sicario and Wind River fame wrote the script and directed this movie.
THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD will be available on HBO Max and theaters on May 14, 2021.
